Re: Question about battery...

Sure,,,

As long as your confident that the used battery is still taking a full charge.

Only problem you will have is if the old battery is worn out it will drop faster & farther than the new battery,,
Set your cuttoff kinda high until your sure both batts are discharging equally.

Re: Ways to protect the body shell?

The body is intended to protect the savage,,,Dont go falling in love with the body,,its gonna get beat up.
There are tricks to strenghten them so they last longer,,but its only a bandaid..
If you have a nice shell you dont want to beat,,then get another body to bash with.
